WDFW seeking comment on proposed
rules for public conduct on wildlife lands

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking comment through May 23 on proposed rules for public conduct on department-managed lands.

The proposals, available at http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/land_line/ or at WDFW regional offices, include rules affecting camping, the use of aircraft, dumping, firearms and target practice, commercial uses, road closures, livestock, pets and vehicle use on more than 900,000 acres of wildlife areas and water access sites across the state.

Once adopted, the proposals will become part of the Washington Administrative Code.

“We want to ensure that activities occurring on WDFW lands are consistent with fish and wildlife management goals, and that regulations support habitat and species conservation while allowing a variety of users to enjoy fish- and wildlife-related recreational opportunities,” said Mark Quinn, WDFW lands program manager.

Comments should be mailed by May 23 to: Wildlife Program Commission Meeting Public Comments, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091 or submitted by e-mail to wildthing@dfw.wa.gov.

The public also will have an opportunity to comment during the June 1-2 meeting of the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission in Spokane, where the proposals will be discussed. Adoption of the proposed rules will be considered by the commission during its Aug. 3-4 meeting in Anacortes. See http://wdfw.wa.gov/com/meetings.htm for meeting agendas and locations.
